Our Events


Individually Guided Retreat (IGR)


An Individually Guided Retreat is a very special experience providing the opportunity for a person to explore and deepen their personal relationship with God.


An Individually Guided Retreat is undertaken in silence, a silence which allows the retreatant to find an inner stillness which better enables the person to hear God speak to them: "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)


In this inner journey the retreatant is guided by a trained Spiritual Director. Each day the retreatant meets their director and is invited to share, in so far as they want to, their prayer experience. The director will suggest passages of Scripture which might help the retreatant in their personal journey with God.

Preached Retreat

"Rekindle the gift of God that is within you" (2Tim:16)

The retreat will include reflective inputs each day, Eucharist, times of quiet prayer and times for gentle reflection. The Sacrament of Reconciliation can be celebrated by anyone who wishes to do so.


* Participants are welcome to come for a shorter time within the given dates *

Reflection Day 
We invite you to 'come away to a quiet place, where you can find rest'.
During the year we have 6 individual days of Reflection.
Each day will begin at 9.30am. with tea/coffee and conclude in the afternoon at 3.30pm.

The day will include an input session, time for personal reflection, an opportunity to talk one-to-one with a trained Spiritual Director, Eucharist.

Each of the six days can be attended as 'stand alone' events but you might consider coming along to all of them. Doing this enables you to journey with the Lord right through the year in a prayerful and reflective way.
Triduum Retreat

Celebrate the Easter Ceremonies in the context of a retreat.

During the three days there will be times of silence and opportunities for sharing.

The retreat is open to all.

Lenten Retreat

Easter lies at the very heart of our faith.

St Paul puts it well when he says, "If Christ has not been raised, your faith is in vain." (1Cor 15:17)

This Day of Retreat is an opportunity to take a short time-out to reflect on the mystery we celebrate each Easter.

The day will include an input on the mystery of Easter, time for personal reflection, the Sacrament of Reconciliation (for those who wish it) and will conclude with Mass.

 Do come along and make this Easter about more than chocolate and bunny rabbits!

Each day begins with Registration and Coffee at 10.00am and finishes at 4.00pm. 

Advent Retreat

The coming of God into our world, the Feast of Christmas, expresses, at its deepest level, the incredible love of God for us.......and yet, amid the hype and energy of Christmas, we so easily lose sight of the miracle which is Christmas.


This Retreat is ideally suited for groups or individuals who wish to stop for a few moments, to step outside their busy schedules, to rest, be at peace and reflect in a gentle and prayerful way on the Glory of Christmas.


The Retreat will include a reflective input, Eucharist, quiet times of reflection and an opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconcilliation.


* Available for One or Two days *
